USGS Land Use and Land Cover at 200 meter Resolution

| DOI: 10.5065/CT21-PW71

Land use and land cover digital data are provided for selected locations in the United States by the Earth Science Information Centers (ESIC) of the USGS, as part of the National Mapping Program. The ASCII data files are in character Composite Theme Grid (CTG) format, and include the land use/land cover code for each 200 meter by 200 meter cell in the file. The source dates for the land use classifications generally range from the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
